What if the work I have done does not match these titles?
We know teachers multi-task, so one title could not possibly match all that you plan to do. Simply select a course title you’d like on your transcript that most closely resembles the work you are doing.
We have many different titles and course numbers, so you may take several of these courses over time and develop many different goals towards more effective teaching. Once you have taken a course, you may not select that course title again.
Note: All our courses are available for 1, 2, 3 or 4 units. Should you wish to register for more than 4 credits you will need to register for multiple titles.
